While the humans are busy with chores on the Gold Coast, I, Bengie, am in charge of writing this post!
If anyone is really enjoying the stay on the Gold Coast it is me. While we are anchored in front of Wave Break Island I can go ashore early in the morning for a walk on the beach! I just love trotting along, sniffing, digging holes and chewing on some twigs! We go really early, before all the nasty dogs turn up! Here are a few photos of my latest outing!
Wave Break Island sounds remote but in fact it is smack bang in the middle of the Gold Coast Broadwater. When you take a bird’s eye view, you can see the towers at Southport and the Seaway, the entrance from the ocean! Nothing wild and remote about this place! See, I show you:
The humans are doing boring stuff like seeing the dentist and the doctor and getting their skin checked. My Mum is also getting her aching hands scanned to figure out what is wrong! Me, I don’t have to do any of that. Lucky schmucky! When not doing chores, like cleaning mould off the boat, de-salting our home or fixing things, we hide from the rain! It has been very soggy! Oh and we get friends visiting, like Bill from Zed. I like Bill, he gives me good pats.
Once all the medical checks are done in a couple of weeks, we might go south, sailing all the way to our home state of Victoria for something to do instead of staying in Queensland again for the summer months. I can’t wait to get going and escape all that humidity. I just flake out when it’s so hot and sticky and my humans do too!
Oh, and I’ll let you in on a little secret, on 1 December, we will have been on Anui for three years and four and a half years living afloat full time. It has gone fast, hasn’t it! I am very pleased my Mum & Dad made this boat our home… so comfy and homely and speedy! I like it a lot.
